Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Start by posting ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The offering manager team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive a notification on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

If you encounter any issues accessing the Ideas portals, please send email describing the issue to ideasibm@us.ibm.com for resolution.

UrbanCode Deploy to Support Multi-Component Installs In a Specific Order (Where All Components in an Application Share the same Tag) Based on Snapshot Details

UrbanCode Deploy currently supports installing a component with multiple versions in a specific order based on the order that the versions are added to the component in a snapshot. However, UrbanCode Deploy doesn't support installing multiple components and their respective version(s) in a specific order when all components within an application have the same tag and there's a single "Install Multiple Components" step. We know we can have multiple "Install Multiple Components" steps and have different tags on the components so that components get installed in the correct order based on the order of the "Install Multiple Components" steps within the application process (each targeting a different set of components based on tag names). Our ask is to support installing multiple components and their respective version(s) in a specific order (where all components within an application have the same tag) based on the contents of the snapshot details.

Why is it useful?

This would be useful so that when there are many components which need to be installed in a specific order, we wouldn't need multiple "Install Multiple Components" steps along with unique tags on the respective components (which are all the same type) so that they get installed in the correct order.

In our environment, we'd use this option weekly 10-50 times per week by hundreds of developers.

Who would benefit from this IDEA? Anyone who needs to deploy multiple components and their respective versions in a specific order could benefit from this.
